John Guilford's Builder Notes:

It's a honor for me to produce the Ty Tabor model - let me walk you through it.....

While not visibile outwardly, it features Tone Vents(TM) built into the body which lighten the guitar by about 1 pound.  On average, the guitar weighs 7.15 lbs.  which is light for a mahogany backed guitar.  The Tone Vents(TM) rest underneath a generously thick maple cap. They aren't a chambered system but rather an advanced array of lines similar to a Chevron Pattern or acoutic bracing pattern if you will.  They support the guitar as needed especially at the bridge and neck and allow for greater resonate performance. The tone is more vocal, open and expressive.  The Ty Tabor model features our Shed Neck(TM) which is a blend of ingredients applied directly to the wood that actually sink in as time goes by and it gets more beautiful the more you play.  We use the finest potentiometers on this model that are rated for "Low Torque" which means they are easy to turn.  They are totally addicting and give true volume swells and nuance control. The forearm contour is oriented dramatically forward so that comfort is achieved when standing up - a true performance feature. In keeping with that theme, the neck carve is nicely reduced to a thin carve that was worked and reworked to Ty's preference which is ideal for his chording and lead work. The P-Rails pickups give you authentic single coil (true AlNiCo, not ceramic), P-90 and Humbucker tone (Frank Falbo is a genius). As with all our models, the Buzz Feiten tuning system is applied for flawless intonation and tuning. This instrument is a true culmination of expertise in components masterfully worked into one of the worlds finest electric guitar designs. On Behalf of Ty and myself, we encourage you to own one for yourself.
